Kettering College Plans for Summer 2021 Semester Due to Coronavirus

Kettering College is prepared to deliver a quality academic experience while keeping the safety of our students, staff, and faculty at the forefront as we return to campus for the summer 2021 semester.

Classes begin Monday, May 10.

  1. A blended method of instruction will be used. We will have a combination of face-to-face and online learning experiences.
  2. Clinical training will be face-to-face at clinical sites and through simulation activities on campus.
  3. Laboratory work will primarily be on campus.
  4. Lecture or didactic work will be a combination of face-to-face and online delivery.

Goals and Outcomes

Program Effectiveness Data

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) collects “Program Effectiveness Data” using current information provided by accredited programs on program completion rate, credentialing examination pass rate and job placement rate.

    • Program Completion Rate (calculated annually)

      The number of students who complete the program within a cohort compared to the number who enrolled in the cohort initially.

    • Credentialing Examination Pass Rate (five-year average)

      The number of graduates who pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT) or an unrestricted state licensing examination (Radiography, Radiation Therapy, and Magnetic Resonance) compared with the number of graduates whose first attempt take the examination occurs within six months of graduation.  Note: for Medical Dosimetry, the credentialing examination is administered by the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board (MDCB).

    • Job Placement Rate (five-year average)

      The number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences, within twelve months of graduation, compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences.

2019 Data

    • Annual Completion Rate

      25/27 = 93%

    • Credential Examination First-Time Pass Rate

      5 yr. average first time pass rate (2015-2019): 88/97 = 91%

    • Job Placement Rate

      5 year average job placement: 89/89 = 100% Data obtained via personal (verbal or electronic) communication with former students, graduate and employer surveys, and/or professional communication with medical facility personnel.
